Ron Collis a Private Investigator who practises in Melbourne, Australia. His speciality is the location of missing persons. He is also a Process Server.
They love being in big open places. They have LOTS of energy so they need regular walking and they like to play with toys because they get bored easily and if they're bored the could be destructive! They also are VERY furry so they will need regular grooming and baths.
a collie is a sheepdog. it is meant to be the most intelligent dog breed.
Usually collies can be kept anywhere in the world as long as they are cared for!
Collies do shed but remember Collies need extra care with their fur and can't run to long in the heat without water.

Lassie was a rough-coated standard collie The one on TV was a rough coated sable collie, the one in the Lassie Come Home book is described as a tri color collie, but pictured as a sable. There are several color varieties of collies as well as some with a smooth or short coat.
The most accepted origin of the word is "Coll" - the Anglo-Saxon word for black.
A bearded collie is much bigger than a border collie and the bearded collie has longer hair than the border collie.
It depends on which breed of collie you have. There are several, but they are very different: the rough collie, smooth collie, the border collie, and the bearded collie . The rough collie is the Lassie-type dog, and usually, having two brushes is good for normal daily purposes. Show grooming is much… more involved. The one brush should be a comb-like one (for thick undercoat), and the other with shorter spikes (for the upper coat). They sometimes come in 2-packs at pet stores. The comb-like one should be used first, especially behind the ears and the fur on and adjacent to the tail. Then comes the other brush to pick up the excess fur. Brushing every other day is good to keep the tangles out. Washing should be less frequent, as it makes the coat dry and dull. Once a month, perhaps, twice at most, if it's summer and your dog is stinky. ( Full Answer )
Collies originated in the Scottish Highlands and were used to protect flocks of sheep or herds of cattle. These dogs were also probably used as all-around farm helpers and even hunting companions. There are several variations of the breed -- rough, smooth, bearded and border collies -- all of which …were developed in Scotland, mostly as herding dogs. The modern rough collie, however, is a result of breeding the so-called "Scotch collie" with the borzoi, or Russian wolfhound, for a more elegant-looking animal. These dogs often have much less herding instinct than their earlier cousins. ( Full Answer )
There are several collie breeds coming from Australia but all(even those coming from Austrailia) originated in Britain. If by "state" you mean in USA, none are from America. Do the Americans really think they can claim such a kind creature?! Jokes hon jokes.
Mini-collies are called shelties. They are about as big as a shizu, but their fur makes them look larger. They have the same traits and characteristics as regular collies.
A collie is a distinctive type of herding dog, ultimately originating in Britain , especially in the upland areas of the north and west.
Collies are immensley loyal, unaggressive and other than the docile rough collie or sometimes the border collie, collies love meeting new people and they all love children and are devoted family members.
Collies are very loyal to their owner. They love knowing their owner is safe at all times, and they also enjoy lots of affection. They also enjoy chew toys and socializing with other dogs.
The Border Collie has a more tall, lean and muscular structure- whilst the Collie has a much longer snout, head shape, and bone structure. I show Border Collies, and after a while- they look completely different. But they already do so I don't know what the problem is about noticing the difference.
Yes. Most dogs do. If you're looking for a hypoallergenic dog, try shih-tzus, bichon frise, any hairless breed, border terriers, Irish water spaniel, lhasa apso, Maltese, samoyed, tibetan or wheaten terriers, or a yorkie. I'm sure there are other breeds out there as well if you don't care for any of… these. ( Full Answer )
Nope, they originated on the border of England and Scotland. That's how the name "Border Collie" originated.
I got a collie puppy form the RSPCA last Christmas and his eyes were slightly out. As he grew they became straight and now you could never tell that he had bad eyes when he was a puppy. However, this does not occur in every collie and is just a genetic glitch.
no. A border collie is just part of a group of collies, which include bearded collies, rough collies, border collies and smooth collies :) hope this helps
No, they are not the same breed. They have different length muzzles as well as other differences. Two totally different breeds
Border collies are faster and smarter than collies. Border collies are not a type of collie they are a totally different breed.
From my experience, they are very well mannered, easy to medium to train, fairly intelligent, good with kids, other dogs, and strangers. However, if they're all like mine-they need plenty of exercise, and lots of time with their owners. Otherwise, they get very frustrated and can start to cause prob…lems, especially with excessive barking. They need to be mentally and physically stimulated everyday to keep them happy and keep their owners happy. ( Full Answer )
This is a hard one. After doing research I could not pinpoint adirect link between them. Though a lot of collie breeds can tracetheir roots to spaniel breeds. I found broad non-specific breedinformation about spaniels being bred to get certain traits in acollie. A genetic test would have to be run o…n the individual dogsto see where their genetics can be traced. ( Full Answer )
Border Collies mostly eat dog food but other human food can be eaten. They can eat green beans, hotdogs, roast beef, corn, sausage, and sometimes scrambled eggs are okay.( Note: I wouldn't give your dog to many scrambled eggs because sometimes dogs have a stomach that can only have just mostly dog f…ood or else it will upset it's stomach and you might end up being the one to clean it up) DO NOT FEED YOUR DOG THESE: don't feed dogs grapes, raisins, CHOCOLATE, and any commercial food.( scientist have found out commercial food is bad for dogs and cats because the food is only dead cats and dogs ground up to pieces along with their diseases or other things they had) If you would like you can experiment to see what else your dog would like.

A Border Collie is a herding dog. It is normally black ad white, but can also be tri colored, red or Merle. They are intense, hard working dogs and need a lot of activity. They are very trainable and are widely regarded as the most intelligent dog breed.
My collie DOSE cast but only twice a year. Before the spring/summer (to take of the winter coat) and before the autumn/winter (to take of the summer coat and to grow in a thick winter coat) if you brush your dog during this peiroud i really dose help!
You can get a Border Collie from a reputable dog breeder if you want a puppy with a known pedigree and history or is interested in showing your dog. A breeder recommended by a friend or a relative is the best, as some breeders may sell unhealthy puppies. You may also get a Border Collie from an a…nimal shelter. Not only are you offering a new home to an animal (at a usually inexpensive price), but you can be sure that it is healthy. However, potential behaviour problems developed from the past may be unknown. Acquiring a Border Collie from a friend or relative is also possible, and it is very unlikely that you will end up with a sick dog. However, the chances of getting a dog through this method are odd as most owners want to keep their dogs, few are interested in breeding their dogs and the people you know may not own a Border Collie. It is also possible to get a Border Collie from a pet shop, yet this is highly not recommended as many pet shops are known to sell puppies that are sick or have potential health problems. Many pet shop owners are ignorant about the puppies' health, as well as puppy mills, which is where most pet shop dogs come from. Many puppy mill owners are known to keep their dogs in small cages that were infrequently clean, leading to the spread of diseases as well as causing cruelty to animals. No matter which way you acquired your dog, it is compulsory to take it to a reputable veterinary clinic for a check-up within three days after its arrival. ( Full Answer )
Same as any other dog, but they may need their eyes checked more carefully than other breeds.
No (although rough collies don't come in "red merle;" they come in sable merle, though it can be difficult to tell an adult is a merle). In general, however, if you mate two merles, the litter will wind up including an average of 25% homozygous merles, which will usually be excessively white and hav…e a high probability of being deaf and blind. ( Full Answer )
No. The breed referred to as just the "Collie" is a very different breed than the Border Collie. In fact, the Collie is usually called a Rough Collie or Smooth Collie, based on whether it has long or short hair. Some Hollywood examples of each: Lassie was a Collie. Fly from the movie Babe was a Bo…rder Collie. There are other breeds with Collie in the name, such as Bearded Collies, Farm Collies, Scotch Collies. Collie is a general herding type dog description.

i have a collie that weighs about 65 pounds but she is a little under weight an adult collie that is at the right weight should weigh about 70-80 pounds

In (Scottish) Gaelic it is coilidh. In Irish (Gaelic) it is madra caorach (sheep dog) or sÃpÃ©ir ('sheeper'). In Manx: moddey cloh, moddey keyrragh
There isn't really a smooth-coated border collie. The border collie is a different breed, but the rough collie, with a long double coat, and the smooth collie, with a shorter coat, are pretty closely related. The rough collie and the smooth collie both originated for herding purposes in the British …Isles. They have the same general shape, size, and colorations. The only big difference is the coat type. ( Full Answer )
Nope. They're different dog breeds. Border collies are the smartest dog breed and the most common color is black and white but can also be brown and white. Both are great herding dogs but border collies are the best herding dogs because of their intelligence. Border collies also need a job to be hap…py. Both dogs are good but I strongly recommend a border collie if you have a job for it to do. They're both loyal, cute, and smart dogs. ( Full Answer )
Kind of. They are both herding dogs, and they come from the same dog family, but border collies and collies look different. A border collie can be brown, or black, while collies are a bunch of different colors like: brown, light brown, and black. hope this helped!
Smooth Collies are and soon Rough Collies will be too, because people are so focused on breeds like the Border Collie or a lab/retriever. It seems to me people are no longer fascinated by the breed or they have simply forgotten about this wonderful dog. I own 2 Smooth Collie's.
Collies is the plural of Collie which is a type of dog. A Collie is a sheepdog with long hair and has traditionally bred in Scotland. These are extremely intelligent dogs.
